A-Ahem... Even if I barely know any of you, I felt like replying here anyway. ;u; I read Alice's post and I just had to.
I really know how you feel, it has always been the same for me.
As Camelia said, people often are cruel and two-faced. They make you believe they're always by your side, and then backstab you when you really need them. There are few exceptions, but sadly they aren't many.
As I said before, I know how it feels. I'm in that age when people start doing those things
, and getting more mature in general. My classmates always say bad things about me only because I never had a boyfriend yet, that kind of (stupid) stuff. They totally ignore me, both boys and girls. Overall, three people on twenty talk to me.
I think this is partially due to the fact that, sometimes, I cry a lot, and I can't hold my feelings well. I'm an only child, so I've always been spoiled since I was born. Maybe that's the reason.
They never criticized my hobbies such as drawing and sketching, though I've received many mean comments because I have some Japanese songs on my iPod.
Now I really agree with Camelia. I don't expect you to like the same things I like, but I don't really see the point in criticizing others' interests. If all the people were the same, how boring the world would be...
I understand why you feel well here on Shuu. I like staying here, and on the Internet in general. The person I call "my best friend" only knows me online, and vice versa. I've always looked for real friends on the Internet, because very few people are friendly with me IRL.
You only have to rely on people that you can trust, and maybe in the future it will be better.
First thing - crying is not the sign of being immature. Crying is normal procees when you cannot handle big ammount of emotions. Even if women cry more that men, this is one of reasons why we live longer and less often have mental disorders.
So, this kind of cheered me up as well. ;u;
Also, I hope everything will be alright in your family, Camelia. Get better soon, same to all your relatives. ^^
